I have the privilege to perform in Homeward LA on Sunday, April 22nd at The Young Actor’s Space in Sherman Oaks.
The production is one of over 20 spanning the city of Los Angeles April 13-22.
All proceeds from the 10-day event will directly benefit The Midnight Mission.
I have spent the last seven months working as a writer on the project. We writers interviewed real people who have experienced homelessness in our city, and then we compiled the stories into monologues which have been woven into a night of theater you can experience April 22nd.
Our city is facing a crisis. Homelessness has reached epidemic proportions, spanning reasons from lack of affordable housing, mental health care services, addiction and out-of-control rent increases. This project is a way to understand the journeys and struggles of real human beings, to deepen and humanize their experiences for more people to understand and empathize with.
We will only solve this crisis when we all come together to understand the systemic issues and awaken our compassion to the problem.
It would mean so much to have your support. You can purchase tickets here.

In addition, I will be participating in a talk-back after the Friday, April 20 performance at Boston Court, along with Sam Rivera, the man whose story I wrote for the project. He is a gem of a person, with a remarkable spirit. If you can’t see me perform on Sunday night, please come to Boston Court’s production on Friday night, to hear us both talk about the experience. You can get tickets for that here.
